How to manage your kiss ass boss? Or how to handle politics in your workplace?
I had a boss which is newly joined in our company but he is a former colleague of my former line manager which is now his boss and I am now under this new guy. He used to say to me that I’ve got his back but when there is an issue he cannot defend me instead he keep quite or play innocent and let me take all the burden. But if there is a success he is the one acting like he own the credits. It is hard to deal with this kind of person, but sadly I had no choice because he is now my superior. And my performance appraisal rely on him. One more sad thing is that, if you suggest or contradicts what he says, he will take it personally and he will make my life miserable in my workplace. I don’t wanna lose my job especially in this pandemic situation. But this concerns already affects my work behavior which lead me to become unhappy and demotivated. I also suffer anxiety and stressed at work.
I do really appreciate anyone’s advise and opinions. Thank you so much.
